Pinkmouse, If you ever drive round the southwest side of the M25 I'm in Guildford (about 5m from Jcn10).

Swap them for a pint!

Hey Al you're the one giving stuff away here

Am actually looking for a cheapy pro 15 or 18 for my garage - want to build a 'fullish' range ( 80 - 20000) 3-way horn just so I can hear it. Can't fit it in the house so will have to listen in garage (in mono!). No way I'm dragging the labs about to do the subs. . Am considering doing a cheap aftermarket recone on my jbl 2226 but have only read bad things on them. what d'ya think ?

Rob.

Depends on how much you're going to push it. The aftermarket kits usually have weaker spiders, and the voice coils don't tend to be as robust. If it's only ever going to tick over, then you should be fine, but if you wanted to gig it, then I'd recommend against it. Have you spoken to Wembley Loudspeakers? They tend to be the best for recone kits.

Cheers Al I'll send them a mail. Was looking at pro audio parts for 60 plus postage.

I'd probably push a single 15 pretty hard to be honest - you should see my tempests move even though they're low passed at 30Hz / 24dB oct

So these old, but fully working drivers are up for grabs. I would like to swap them for tweeters, not particularly fussed what, but if I get no offers then all I want is the price of postage. I really need to make some room, and if it helps someone get started with speaker construction, so much the better!

Ok, I have a pair of as new KEF TS1084s, 6" mid bass drivers with the triangular fronts, and a pair of Fostex 4" mid drivers, very nice sounding, sensitive, paper cones, but with a resonance frequency of around 120Hz they will only work in a three way. I don't know the model, as they came out of an old Dynacord PA speaker, but I like them a lot, and will be using the other pair I have in a project soon.

Offers?
I'll have both pairs of drivers off you [the 6 inch and the 4 inch pairs].

I'm in London[Kingsbury] but don't have any transport at the moment. So how much will postage be?

I can swap them for the crossover parts as thats all I got at the moment.

Mostly large iron cored inductors and 250v, 156J polyproplene yellow caps. And a few brand new 20w, 8 ohm white ceramic wirewound resistors.

If you can hang on a bit, I should be up in town in about 10 days or so, or I can put them in the post, probably be about a tenner or so.
